is vista + ie7 protected mode same as running in limited user account? by james
When I use ie7 in vista in an administrator account, it says protected mode is on. Is this equivalent to running the browser in a limited user account? And does that mean no virus/malware can infect my PC even if I accidentally click on a malicious URL?

Like in MSCONFIG you select GAME BOOT then restart your machine with networking to play these more sophisticated games like Battlefield series or flight simulators or whatever. It would be so nice of Microsoft to make an update to Win Vista to allow...

Vista Firewall is worse than independent Firewall or not? by john
I used to use ZoneAlarm, but found it source-consuming in Vista. I am wondering if the Vista firewall is worse than independent firewall, such as Zone Alarm or not? I don't see any reports from vista firewall, and I am suspicious of its strenth against the attack from internet. Any opinions?
